Meet the Designers
Liz Corsi was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Growing up in a metropolitan area gave her a multi-faceted outlook on art, architecture and business. Liz was surrounded by creative industries which aided to her interior aesthetic. Her father was president of an advertising and PR firm, an interior decorator and event planner; her mother was a real estate agent. The influx of her innovative and imaginative parents created her appreciation for spaces. After graduating from UCSB with a B.A. in history – she decided to follow her passions for space planning and design and enrolled in the interior design program at Santa Barbara City College. Upon commencement she finds herself designing and project managing at Smith Firestone Associates; a hospitality and high-end residential design firm based in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and New York. With projects as near as Montecito and as far as Abu Dhabi – Liz has been immersed in every phase of design. With installations under her belt, she continues to absorb and relish in her new career as a young interior designer.
A creative and artistic person by nature, Claudia’s interest in design and aesthetics began as a child growing up in a family where creativity thrived. Her skills for garment construction, elaborate cake decorating, building and refinishing furniture, DIY home projects, event and interior design have all developed in the past 20 years as a result of her curiosity and love for working with her hands. Professionally educated in the real estate field, she decided to switch gears and pursue her passion by obtaining a degree in Interior Design and Art History. By merging the two fields she is able to conceptualize exciting spaces that combine classic with chic to create a space that is the perfect reflection of her client’s personality.
